thousands of points in a relatively short period of time. >> to solve the fiscal cliff, if romney got elected, wouldn't they just extend the bush tax cuts and then work on a couple other things? the reason that it won't be solved right now is because we kc can't get a tax deal done because the democrats are insisting they expire for over 250,000. i mean, why wouldn't -- if you want to solve the fiscal cliff, if you elected romney, you'll solve the fiscal cliff because the house will probably still be republicans. so he passes it, they sign it and the fiscal cliff is finished. p there is no fiscal cliff. >> you're trying to get me to invoke my republican heritage here? >> i know, i'm taking a big -- sticking my neck out trying to get a taft to say, yeah, that might work. but i was thinking about that this morning. the fiscal cliff, the reason that at least the tax part of it, that's one of the reasons, right? be a man. step up to the plate. >> here's the issue. it doesn't matter all that much whether obama or romney is elected president. what matters is how whoever is president engages

it is down the road, but the real problem is getting our arms around spending versus revenue. >> if romney wins, it's a nonissue. >> if romney win, he doesn't get sworn in until the end of january, so there's the question of coming up with an extender. >> they would, wouldn't they, if he won and he knew who was going to be in the house, they wouldn't say there and say we're not going to do hf-- >> i think what will happen is if he win, he and the republicans in the house if they're still in control of the house, which everyone thinks that they will be at in point, they will come up with some kind of way to signal to the markets here's what we're going to do on inauguration day right after the big speech on capitol hill. so i think they'll send that message, but they won't be able to get it signed until romney is sworn in. unless they can come up with some kind of an unusual deal in which obama would sign a deal that romney would like. i don't see that happening particularly in obama just lost to the guy. they don't have a whole lot of love for each other. >> everybody wants to extend the b

him doing more events that will have to be canceled than romney. on the other hand, because romney is down a field goal and needs something to happen, the idea that sandy could flereeze things in place for a few days is not necessarily good for him because he had momentum after the first debate. the momentum seems to have died out. it's left him in a very competitive position. he could win the election. but he may need a little bit of push by the end. and then the other thing that people talk about is the idea that president obama can showrd shal leadership and he's helping people, using fema and other tools of the administration. i'm kind of skeptical of that because i think people understand that that's a president's job. i don't see the president getting much mileage out of that. but who knows. >> this is a random question. if the election were held tomorrow, would they ever cancel or delay the actual election itself due to weather,s that that ever happened? >> not to my knowledge. i think it would be very, very difficult to do. but, you know, stranger things have happened. i'm
